Fontana di Trevi

So after St. Peter's Basilica,I went to Fontana di Trevi (dito hinanap noon ni Piolo si Jennifer sa pelikulang MILAN)...

The Trevi Fountain (Italian: Fontana di Trevi) is the largest — standing 25.9 meters (85 feet) high and 19.8 meters (65 feet) wide — and most ambitious of the Baroque fountains of Rome. It is located in the rione of Trevi.

A traditional legend holds that if visitors throw a coin into the fountain, they are ensured a return to Rome.

Approximately 3,000 Euros are thrown into the fountain each day and are collected at night. The money has been used to subsidize a supermarket for Rome's needy. However, there are regular attempts to steal coins from the fountain, including some using a magnetized pole.

Here are some pictures that I took at the Trevi Fountain.

I grabbed these two photos in the internet because it's hard for me to take the complete photo of the fountain.:-)
